Jack-In-The-Can by RNL

The contest in which design teams create structures with canned food, has returned to the Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks, and will be on display through October 15th.

Taking Warhol’s soup can to a whole new level; CANstruction produced by the Society for Design Administration, and organized by the offices of State Senator Jack Scott & Assemblyman Mike Feuer, gathers together L.A. architects & designers to create creative displays, and raise awareness about hunger. The competitions have been held in over 45 cities in the U.S. and Canada including New York, Las Vegas, and San Diego to name a few.

At the end of the contest, judges will award the best exhibits, and all of the canned foods will be donated to the L.A. Regional Food Bank.

Spread throughout the mall; some of this years clever entries include a candlelit dinner table, a jack-in-the-“can”, a huge ipod, a surfing cow, and more, and are fun to check out while shopping.
